  • When in Hexham, don't miss the Abbey. Its beautiful and amazing, with terrific history behind it. The new Visitor Centre there is well worth a visit. Plus, don't forget the Refectory Cafe. The home made cheese scones and fruit scones (especially loaded with cream and jam) are delicious.
  • It felt very welcoming and peaceful. We were at evensong and it was really nice.
  • Beautiful building and wonderful information area that will engage children. A truly spiritual place. Make sure to visit the 7th century crypt of St. Wilfred.
  • Well worth a walk round the history of this place is very interesting and it even has hands on exhibits.
  • Lovely Northumbria market town with this church at its heart
